CONSTANT JOY

JOY --- great gift springing from the heart of God has made my babyhood bubble with mirth to ripple along sweet glee’s purity so cherished by family as treasure… …Such exuberance thrives midst love’s nurture enriching childhood albeit growing pains advancing toward adolescent years zest reigning over great challenges’ angst… …As maturity paves way to progress blest happiness wrought by Christ grips my soul since His eternal life’s grant secures me assuring freedom peace by pardon’s seal… …With that offered vibrant relationship my reached-out heart yields to divine changes though struggling against carnality bouts striving to please the Lord Who brings triumph bliss… …Propped through the Saviour’s strengthening gladness my faith constantly seeks for His favour while surmounting rigours, causing distress in prayer-communion’s sublime delights… …When conquered by human nature’s attacks my grieving spirit finds rest in the Lord ready to lift me up with revival cheers rejuvenating me from drained ardour… …Ascending upward zealous service I press on with fresh vigour’s fervency fortified by the Holy Ghost’s power grateful to “Rejoice in the Lord always*.”
*Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. February 15, 2021

Beautiful!! Such a banner of praise and the beautiful ending "...fortified by the Holy Ghost’s power grateful to “Rejoice in the Lord always*. Life can be so hard, a struggle against carnality, yes, a war between our spirit and flesh. It can be exhausting. His mercies are new every morning and we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us through the power of His Holy Spirit. I love your faith Beata, you uplift me. Rejoicing in Him for the gift He has bestowed upon you in this message!
